Burton Nug Snowboard
The single-board quiver is sort of the "white whale" of the snowboarding world. Everyone whispers about it, but it's all but impossible to find. But that's not to say it isn't worth trying for. Burton has a fast, new boat and a full arsenal of harpoon guns, and it may have just have hauled it in. The Nug packs a big board into a little package by reworking the dimensions and materials. According to Burton, you can downsize by 8 to 10 centimeters and still enjoy the same stability of a standard board. The smaller size makes the board lighter and more willing on jumps, hits and features. Burton uses a V-Rocker for float and pop, Frostbite edges for surer hold and Jumper Cable carbon stringers for liveliness. Strap this white whale to your back and venture all over the mountain.
